Greengate (Salford) :: Shared Description

Greengate is the original historic core of Salford and sits within the easternmost part of the City of Salford. Comprising 13 hectares of strategically located land, it is bounded by the River Irwell, Victoria Bridge Street and Chapel Street, Blackfriars Road and Trinity Way, which forms part of the Manchester inner ring road.

In the mid-1800s some two thirds of the population of the city lived in the Greengate District but, by the 1930s, it was in a state of decay and declared a slum clearance area. More recently, the area was developed first for large scale industrial and manufacturing purposes and then, following the decline of these industries in the 1970s and 1980s, the area became occupied by a mixture of generally low grade employment uses and long stay surface car parking.

Following years of decline, the area has been designated for large scale development including a mixture of high rise residential and commercial buildings.
